Description

During the course of a workshop session, put yourself in the shoes of a perfumer-in-training by personalizing an Eau de Cologne fragrance with aromatic notes, citrus fruit and orange blossom!

During an unforgettable session of 90 minutes, learn about the different key fragrances of perfumery and how to compose your own Eau de Cologne. The workshop will take place in the historic factory in Grasse and the expert teacher who will accompany you will tell you the history of the perfumery and the origins of raw materials used that you will discover during the workshop. You will learn to understand how the olfactory pyramid functions:  head notes, heart notes and base notes. 

Once you have awakened your olfactory memory, you will be able to personalize your own Eau de Cologne using the 9 essences at your disposal.

At the end of the workshop, you will leave with a 100ml bottle and pouch for your fragrance, a Fragonard apron and a “Perfumer-in-training” diploma.
